Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Liz Ley­don

A Cam­bus­lang pen­sioner who was re­ported miss­ing last week has been found safe and well.

James Whitelaw, 67, (pic­tured) had only re­cently re­turned to the area from Aus­tralia when he was re­ported miss­ing by his fam­ily last Mon­day.

His con­cerned rel­a­tives couldn’t reach James, who has lim­ited mo­bil­ity, be­cause he did not have his mo­bile phone with him. James has been staying in the Scot­tish Spe­cials in Half­way, Cam­bus­lang and had last been seen at an ad­dress in Cess­nock Place.

How­ever, on Satur­day his de­lighted nephew Ian Sey­mour took to so­cial me­dia and said:“My un­cle has been found safe and well and is en route back to Glas­gow at the mo­ment.

“Thank you all for your con­tin­ued sup­port, it’s very much ap­pre­ci­ated. Just glad he’s been found safe!”

A po­lice spokesman con­firmed the Cam­bus­lang man had been traced.

Be­fore James was found PC Karen Hay from Cam­bus­lang po­lice of­fice said:“James has been go­ing through some per­sonal is­sues re­cently and there­fore his fam­ily and friends are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly con­cerned for his wel­fare.”
